Golf Swing Tips

To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

We had one ideal on our mind from the start – to be the best. We couldn’t build tradition and create a sense of history but we could strive for unrivalled quality. Many pretend, yet few succeed in reaching the desired peak of excellence. It takes commitment, a zest for achieving your goals and a team dedicated to making it happen. We followed one maxim – To be the best, we had to choose the best.

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

Experience is required both to learn good feel and touch and the confidence to fully use it. You cannot learn confidence from a book or videotape although both can teach you how to learn it. Once you learn the size of the stroke that you need and how it feels to make it then all it takes is practice to learn to move from the preview stroke to the real stroke in a timely manner. If you have learned to do this and practiced it a lot you’ll develop a quiet understanding a confidence a calm and a focus that allow you to concentrate on the meaningful and controllable aspects of feel and touch.

And your mind is important because it controls all of the above. It controls how you move your body and how you move your body controls your putter and how your putts start rolling. Your mind orchestrates the symphony – the motions the rhythm and the sequence of those motions – it controls the complete motion of the putting stroke. If you use positive self talk – something like “Okay now let’s make this the most beautiful rhythmic and smooth stroke we’ve ever seen” – before you prepare to putt and then maintain the presence of mind to prepare properly (making and judging a proper practice stroke then focusing on repeating it) your mind will allow you to execute the best stroke you know how to make. This is how a confident (positive) attitude helps a golfer putt better.

Some golfers even learn to create positive focus by using a negative image. A few of the professionals I’ve worked with stand over an important putt and imagine that they’ve already missed it. This is their way of creating a positive attitude because they know that they almost always make their putts on the second try.

The point is not how you create a good attitude. Rather it is that you do create an attitude before you putt that allows you to use a clear mind to see and feel the perfect stroke before you try to make it and also allows your body to go ahead and execute it without self-doubt.

The Long Drive Bible: How You Can Hit the Ball Longer, Straighter, and More Consistently

Extract from the book:

To see this drawback look at how Perfy misses a simple three-foot putt with

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 85 his perfect in-line-square stroke (Figure 4.7.9). The problem is obvious: If you don’t align your shoulders parallel to the desired starting line for the putt even the perfect stroke path and a square putter blade won’t start the ball rolling on the right line.

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.

4.8 The Importance of Putterface Angle

While putter path has relatively minor influence on the starting line direction of your putts (only about 17 percent) the putterface angle at the moment of impact (Figure 4.8.1) has a tremendous effect the remaining 83 percent (assuming contact is made on the sweetspot). This means face angle is more than four times as important as putter path. You may find this imbalance in importance surprising (most golfers do) but it’s true.

If you are having a hard time believing this run the following test for yourself. As shown in Figure 4.8.2 aim the edge of a heavy piece of wood to the left edge of a target. Place a ball just outside the wood about the distance from the heel of the

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 87 putter to the sweetspot and hold the putterface open to a 45-degree angle to the target with a piece of cardboard (cut the cardboard with equal-length sides A and B at right angles then cut side C between the end points as shown in the inset). Using both hands to hold the face open at that angle and keeping the heel against the wood slide the putter toward the target to simulate a putting stroke (shown from right to left in figure). If you keep the face 45 degrees open the ball will start to the right almost perpendicular to the open face (actually 45 degrees times .83 = 37 degrees) no matter how hard you hit it.
